Boom! Goes the fireworks lighting up the dark sky,

I hear the sound of the whistling fireworks echoing in the smoke-filled air.

 Families gather around the roman candle about to explode,

Sssssss! The fountain emits showers of colours and sparks.

Fizzzzz! I hear the sparklers sizzle in my hand,

Brrrrr! my hands and feet are freezing in the night time air.

The firework wheels are spinning a rainbow of colour glistening under the moon,

Popping cascades are jumping with delight
